IF THIS IS FRONT WHEEL DRIVE YOU HAVE A CV SHAFT AXLE AND THESE CAN BE QUITE A JOB. YOU SHOULD HAVE AN INNER AND OUTER CV JOINT IT WILL BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE WHOLE SHAFT.
YOU WILL HAVE TO JACK AND SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE CAR WITH OUT GETTING ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF THE AXLE YOU ARE TRYING TO REPLACE. 1) REMOVE THE WHEEL 2) REMOVE THE NUT THAT HOLDS THE AXLE IN THE SPINDLE. 3) REMOVE THE CALIBERS AND PAD FROM THE ROTOR 4)REMOVE THE ROTOR 5) REMOVE THE TORTION BAR END BUSHINGS AND LOWER BALL JOINT. WITH A SOFT HAMMER DRIVE THE AXLE SHAFT END FROM THE SPINDLE WHILE YOU PULL THE STRUTT AWAY FROM THE CAR . THE AXLE END SHOULD SLIDE OUT OF THE SPINDLE AND THAT END SHOULD FALL TO THE GROUND. WITH A LONG PRY BAR YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE OTHER END OUT OF THE TRANS/AXLE HOUSING. TO REPLACE THE AXLE SHAFT JUST REVERSE THESE DIRECTIONS. YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK THE SPINDLE BEARINGS FOR PLAY OF ANY KIND. THERE IS NOTHING WORST THEN HAVING TO DO THIS TWICE. IT'S NOT TO BAD OF A JOB BUT CAN BE TIME CONSUEMING IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. HOPE THIS HELPS

U-joints and axil repairs,i replaced the front axil drivers side with a 4wheeler axil instead of changeing the u-joint now the passager u-joint is broken did i do it wrong.


As your Jeep has four wheel drive, I don't understand what you mean by a "4wheeler axle",
What was the difference between the one you had and the one you installed?
If you installed it and it is working, I don't see how it could cause the one on the opposite side to fail.
Though I'd need a better understanding of what you actually have done, my present answer to your question is no, and likely the other side needed to be replaced as well, but you did not notice.

Rear outer berring failed have removed axils cannot get berring out. using slide hammer and heating up outer axil what else is there to try ?


you can use a long rod or pipe inserted from the opposite side to try and drive the bearing out. Make sure what ever you use is clean so you do not get dirt/rust in the other bearing. Better yet replace both bearings and both seals while you have the cover off and the axles out.

Cv boot repair


I found it easier to replace the drive axil assembly, rather than just the boot. Far faster and cleaner, and about $150 per axil plus labor. Can be difficult if you have not done it before.
